Some may argue against that but i have a s-w highway patrolman that the forcing cone was smooth and shiny
Until i shot about 500 rounds with lil gun .... it looks like it was sandblasted now .
See, it's not just me who has seen the argument against Hodgdon Lil'Gun.
I only built loads in .357 Magnum using a 158gr Zero JSP. I built 16, 17 and 18 grain loads and all ran like a house afire, and then I quit using the powder because of it's reputation.
I can make you a solid deal on a decent portion of unused Lil'Gun, however!

Yes, I did. CCI small rifle primers can be used in lieu of their magnum small pistol primers.

Morne wrote:... this was a mere 16.0-gr of Lil' Gun and the most conservative maximum for a 240-gr bullet is around 22.5-gr.? Should I go up by 1.0 grains and re-chrono? Maybe build 17.0-gr and 18.0-gr loads and run them both?
